For the 2016-2017 school year, we were awarded 270 National AmeriCorps slots. As AmeriCorps members, tutors will also be eligible for AmeriCorps benefits as defined by the AmeriCorps contract including:
- The Segal Education Award after your full term of service of $ 5,815.00. The Segal Education Award is good for seven years from the end of service and can be used to repay qualified student loans or for future education at eligible schools. You can find additional information about the Segal Education Award here.
- Possible forbearance of qualified student loans. Note that interest continues to accrue. However accrued interest on qualified loans is eligible for payment by the National Service Trust.
- Childcare benefits if you qualify.
